Er.. you've not allowed much time for people to comment.  I don't think
it's fair to be disappointed.

The one issue I'm wondering about is: what about recompilation?
How does recompilation and rebuilding (either a clean rebuild,
or a rebuild after a minor patch -- say, for testing) fit into
your worldview?

I'm kinda stuck on compiling debian packages myself, but the issues I
need to address have nothing to do with trying someone else's source
compilation. They have to do with organizing my work so I know what step
needs to be taken next.  [Or does your demo address this?]
